Hi Everyone! My friends call me Mr.T and the crazy guy you see on the quad bike having a blast, that’s me! Alright, so you’re planning a vacation to a developing country, and, of course, you want your trip to be amazing, yet still safe and headache free, so you can return with great memories and even higher confidence for travelling abroad in the future. Well all of this is definitely possible, especially if you follow the advice of the versed travelers and experienced expats in this documentary.

At the moment we’re visiting the North Coast of the Dominican Republic ( Caribbean ), and in this episode I’ll be sharing both my own travel tips, as well as talking to different travelers and expats to gain their knowledge, so your future vacations can be both safe and fun. Enjoy! 🙂

    Thank you for this excellent video. Very very informative and realistic. l have been to the DR several times. l have tried all inclusive resorts, villas, friends homes and actually  twice living in the  country  in a haitian refugee camp.  Learning some basic spanish helps and travelling with a pocket size dictionary is important. The last time l was there, let`s say about 3 and a half years ago moto conchos were somwhere between 20 to 25 pesos and local taxis around 25 to 50. As for the gua guas depending where your going it started at 5 to about 25, chickens included. From Puerto Plata to Sosua it cost me 15, maybe because l spoke spanish with the driver or gave him a bottle of wáter. And yes Haitians are great people.

    You are exagerating a bit for taxi from puerto plata airport to town for 50-100 pesos for those outside airport area. That was in 1916. I say that because moto concho always ask for 100 -200 for simple short ride and if you offer 50 pesos, they say they will do it for free and if you agree on the free thing, they come back with the 100 -200 pesos. Dominican people are oK in most part except for those in tourist areas and even more if you have to deal with them. They can be real shit.

    You have to be careful about the "tigueres" in the back ground. Country is full of them committing crimes. What a shame, such a beautiful country gone to ruins.  Should have passed out birth control pills. That guy thinks he is hot. Poor thing.

    Wow great video Mr T, very informative, fun and leaves me wanting to learn more. I enjoy your personal interviews and sights and sounds, great editing too.

    also great information about traveling around, car rentals, motoconches and traveling in a place where nobody follows traffic rules.Don't give up passport when renting and get full insurance when renting a car. also good tips on food.

    I wish I had seen this 10 years ago when I first arrived. This is excellent introduction to the reality of the north shore. Too many gringos are a target for hustlers and become victimized. Great tips for people who visit here and even those who have been living here for a while. I live here and every thing Mr.T presents is right on the money. Pay attention . This is a real perspective of the local hustles that could save a person from having a bad experience.
